Amazon has taken the UK rights to hit US comedy-drama, The Bold Type, which follows the lives of three spirited young women in their twenties working for a global women’s magazine based in New York City.
Inspired by the life of Joanna Coles, former Editor-in-Chief of fashion magazine Cosmopolitan and current Chief Content Officer of Hearst Magazines, The Bold Type follows three 20-something women who work at Scarlet magazine.
The rising generation of Scarlet women lean on one another as they find their own voices in a sea of intimidating leaders. Together, they explore sexuality, identity, love and fashion.
The series stars Katie Stevens (Faking it) as Jane, Aisha Dee (Chasing Life) as Kat, Meghann Fahy (Political Animals) as Sutton. The series also stars Sam Page (House of Cards), Matt Ward (Remedy) and Melora Hardin (Transparent) as Jacqueline, Editor-in-Chief of Scarlet Magazine.
As well as the UK, the series will launch exclusively on Prime Video in the UK, Germany, France and Spain. All of the first season’s 10 60-minute episodes will be available from 9th February.
“The Bold Type is an entertaining, fast-paced and timely TV show and we’re delighted to be launching it exclusively on Prime Video in the UK, Germany, France and Spain,” said Jay Marine, VP Prime Video EU.
“This is the latest in a line-up of shows on Prime Video with strong female protagonists at their core including, most recently, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel which won two Golden Globe® awards earlier this month.
“We look forward to hearing what Prime members in Europe think of the first season ahead of the second season launching later this year, also exclusively on Prime Video.”
The service is also available with a stand-alone subscription.
